Here's another factor to add to all of this:
"...rapid-onset gender dysphoria. It’s new. Something scientists are only beginning to notice. It happens to kids—mostly teenage girls—who are really bright, but have trouble fitting in...And they spend too much time on the Internet...kids with rapid-onset usually have friends who think they’re trans, too. It’s a social contagion. If one kid transitions, their friends get the idea, too. It spreads.”
Call the Police! Mom questions transgender treatment model, gets banned from support group
But hey...let's shut down respected doctors who try to treat gender-dysphoric patients on a case by case basis, and accuse concerned parents of child abuse if they don't immediately "affirm" their children's whims!
Based on the above, who can blame @Aoune32! of being concerned for his kids?
Well anyway I know from personal experience that you can overcome the beleif you are trans, yes I am coming out lol, and you can even do it without a professional therapist...but that doesn't mean all your psychological problems will be over unfortunately. I am pretty sure it's not in your DNA to be like that, even when you are like that at a very young age, except for the few who are maybe hermaphrodite, but for the vast majority it's just non optimum conditions growing up, your upbringing, your experiences, the context, your education etc lots of factors! Being gay also. If you can't change it, it doesn't mean you were born that way, it just means its so well engrained into your core, you can't possibly change it or you might spend the majority of your time and energy trying, which makes it a complete waste. Especially since it's not that bad, and you are not hurting anyone.It's just like a fetish or a different lifestyle.
Though it's pretty fascinating that you can now choose your sex haha. In some fish species, the female fish can change her sex n become male when there is a lack of males around for example, so it's not all that absurd or "unatural". Boys and girls are also practically the same until puberty hits, so this whole thing is silly in the larger spectrum of life
